Ngöndro Teachings with Buddhist Monk Khedrupchen Rinpoche

We’ll be hosting 2 rare workshops with the Buddhist monk Khedrupchen Rinpoche

This is a unique opportunity to receive intimate instruction from a high level Rinpoche and lineage holder in the Tibetan Buddhist tradition. He’ll be offering the Ngöndro teachings, which are the foundational, preliminary teachings for all of the other high-level teachings you receive through Luminous. These teachings are often described as the foundation of the house, without which the house will fall over.

Khedrupchen Rinpoche is the living lineage holder for these transmissions. When he teaches in his own country of Bhutan, over 5,000 people will show up to receive the teachings. This is a rare and precious opportunity to receive an in-person transmission from a Rinpoche as high as him, as his teachings hold the power of all the teachers that came before him.

He is only in the United States for a short period of time before returning home to Bhutan. Anna-Lisa personally recommends you make this event a priority if you can attend!

About H.E. Khedrupchen Rinpoche:
Guest Teacher, Buddhist Monk

His Eminence graduated from Ngagyur Nyingma College, Dehradun, India in 2014. Prior to his graduation the Rephel Mindrol Lhakhang monastery (established in the 8th century) in Trongsa Bhutan was offered to him by the local community.

Initially in disrepair, it is now being reconstructed under the new name, Sangchen Ugyen Tsulag Monastery and is located close to Samcholing village.

His Eminence is recognized and was enthroned as the Fifth successive reincarnation of Kyabgon Khedrupchen Jigme Kundrol, an illustrious heart son of Rigzin Jigme Lingpa.
